Access roads to Blackburn garages to close
6:00am Friday 28th December 2012 in Blackburn
BLACKBURN with Darwen council is to close two unnamed streets to a former group of garages off Gretna Street in Little Harwood.
Twin Valley homes want the small highways ‘stopped up’ as the garages at the rear of Whalley New Road are no longer used and they no longer have any purpose.
The social housing group owns all the surrounding land and asked the borough planning and highways committee to take the legal moves to shut the streets.
The committee agreed the two roads were no longer needed and authorised the council’s legal officers to apply for the ‘stopping up order’ from the town’s magistrates.
